Kerhonkson and Surrounding Areas

Kerhonkson /kərˈhɒŋksən/ is a hamlet in Ulster County, New York, United States. The population was 1,684 at the 2010 census. Kerhonkson is a small hamlet which, along with Accord, makes up the Town of Rochester on US 209. It is located in the Shawangunk Mountains, famous for the rock climbing and biodiversity of the Shawangunk Ridge. The Minnewaska State Park Preserve is located in Kerhonkson. Kerhonkson is also the site of a colonial fort that protected the early settlers from Indian attacks. The fort was located on Deyo's Hill. Before the burning of Kingston on October 12, 1777 all the important documents and government officials were moved to Kerhonkson, remaining for two weeks until they were moved to Albany making Kerhonkson the capital of New York for a short while. The Rondout Creek, a tributary of the Hudson River, runs northeast just southeast of the main town. The Delaware and Hudson Canal was completed in 1828. This opened up local industries such as coal, lumber, dairy, and hotels. Barges towed by mules transported goods along the Rondout Creek from Pennsylvania to the Hudson River. The Delaware and Oswego Railroad was constructed in 1909 along the old canal tow path and a station was constructed along main street to ship out dairy products. The tracks were pulled up in 1957 once products were being moved by truck upstate. This path is now a popular local hiking and biking destination referred to as the “Rail Trail”. It is 3.5 miles in length.
